Mississippian rocks in north-central Oklahoma were deposited on a ramp-shelf system that trended along an approximate northeast–southwest strike and that deepened to the southeast and southwest into the Arkoma and Anadarko basins. The system is bounded on the east by the Ozark uplift. Structure in this area is dominated by extensional and transverse faulting associated with the Transcontinental arch (Nemaha uplift). Shallower water (shelf) depositional settings dominate in the northern part of the study area and deepen toward the south into the Anadarko and Arkoma basins.
Sedimentary rocks on the carbonate ramp are dominated by cyclic, partially dolomitized, argillaceous...
